The New Autoimmune Disease Cure?
Experts estimate that 1 out of every 5 adults in the U.S. suffers from some sort of autoimmune disease, and 75% of these sufferers are women. These autoimmune diseases include rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, celiac disease, multiple sclerosis, and type 1 diabetes.
While each disease comes with its own symptoms and possible treatments, they share a common thread: inflammation. Cannabidiol is proven to fight inflammation, and with it, the symptoms of the autoimmune diseases.
A 2010 study speculates that this may be due to CBD acting to suppress cytokine production, which alters the immune system response. Women suffering from rheumatoid arthritis have been using CBD for years to treat both the short and long-term effects of the disease with excellent results.
Buh Bye Anxiety!
Numerous studies have demonstrated that CBD is an incredibly effective treatment for anxiety. For example, one study looked patients who suffered from anxiety when faced with public speaking. The individuals who consumed CBD before giving a speech reported less stress and a better performance than those who took a placebo.
CBD is also effective at treating an underlying anxiety disorder, especially for women who have not been helped by other treatments.
